May Holt


I'm a member of the Appeals Committee for the State Emergency Service.


I'm with the Naval Association that play indoor bowls, carpet bowls. 


I'm Welfare Officer for the Peninsula Ex-Service-Women and for Frankston RSL. I do pensions for the Frankston RSL.


I do one Friday morning a fortnight at the Larder Shop opportunity shop. That's in Central Park. It's not such hard work, but we cater for people on pensions, health cards, that sort of thing. 


Most of our goods are no more than two dollars, there's clothing etcetera. And the money that comes from that goes to the Citizens Advice Bureau, which is under a different name now and I can't remember it, and they give out vouchers for people who are having a hard time for food. That's run by the Uniting Church, St Andrews started it off, and Wesley have joined them.


It's only my own choice that makes me want to be involved. It's very rewarding, the same as the Welfare and Pensions Officer with the RSLs.
